Earlier this week, a wild rumor began to swirl in the Irish tabloids about Conor McGregor getting into a bar fight with people related to the Kinahan drug cartel last Sunday in Ireland. Despite not being named in the story, many have claimed Conor is “the well-known Irish celebrity” who allegedly assaulted a person closely associated with the Irish mob.

A well-known Irish celebrity has assaulted a close associate of a senior Kinahan cartel henchman in a south Dublin pub.
During the row, a man in his 50s with close links to convicted drug dealer Graham ‘The Wig’ Whelan (35) was punched.
Gardaí are aware of the incident, which happened on Sunday night, but no complaint has yet been made.

It is understood the sports star attempted to assault another young man in the pub, when Whelan’s associate attempted to intervene before being punched twice in the face.
This man, aged in his late 50s, has been described as a “completely innocent” individua

Conor added fuel to the rumors by posting an Instagram post titled “the celebrity” in reference to the tabloid stories.

During radio interview yesterday, veteran Irish crime reporter Paul Williams believes Conor may be in serious trouble and may have to leave the country before something scary happens.

Just want to make a comment about this. Conor McGregor is potentially in very, very serious danger, I hear that from my sources and from looking at the lay of the land. He has ended up crossing swords- accidentally or however – with some very, very heavy people, or some people who are related to some very, very heavy people who could pose a very serious threat to his safety, and potentially his life. And I don’t say that lightly.

And these people, you have to remember – as I keep saying – they don’t care, they don’t have parameters, they don’t have boundaries, they don’t discriminate between whether you’re an international sporting icon or just a man on the street. They shoot you, they injure you, they do whatever they want to do.

I would say, in the next 48 hours, if he still in the country – and I understand that he may have left the country – but if he is still in the country, I understand from my sources that the Garda will be approaching him to give him a GIM form, which is a Garda Information Message, to tell him that there may be threats to his safety. This is a huge story, and imagine what it would do to our reputation if this national sporting icon is attacked by a bunch of gangsters.

The media caught up with Conor as he was leaving an Irish courthouse yesterday where he was summoned for a speeding ticket and the MMA star yelled out “come and get me” when asked about the rumored threats to his life by the Irish mob.

Probably not the best idea to act cocky against real-life mobsters.
